2.ZS0 2. 


College life, traditionally gay 
with youth, music, and laughter, 
assumed a newly serious tone as 
the University of Wyoming geared 
itself for war. Some semblance of 
school as usual has been main- 
tained this year, undoubtedly the 
last such year for the duration. 

We hope that the 1943 WYO 
will do more than present a sum- 
mary of the year's events, and 
that it will recreate in your mem- 
ories a vivid picture of this highly 
significant year.

Capable Administration 
Steers Campus At War 

Headed by President J. L. Morrill, the University administra- 
tion has had this year an unusually difficult assignment. Their 
object has been to make the greatest possible contribution to 
the war effort while simultaneously maintaining a semblance of 
education as usual. The expanding naval aviation training pro- 
gram here, the army engineering training program, the many 
special "war courses" added to the curricula, and the men whom 
the school has contributed to the armed forces evidence their 
success. Traditional college training is still provided here for 
a sizable number of students despite the exigencies of war. 

Since President Morrill came here from Ohio State University 
last spring, he has come to be recognized by both faculty mem- 
bers and students as one of the University's most valuable assets. 
Possessing the rare ability to be both a good fellow and a good 
administrator, Dr. Morrill leads the school in every sense of the 

President Morrill at his desk in Old Main. 

Five colleges make up the University of Wyoming, and each is headed 
by a dean. They are Dean J. A. Hill of Agriculture, Dean R. R. Hamilton of 
Engineering, Dean P. T. Miller of Liberal Arts, Dean R. D. Goodrich of Engi- 
neering, and Dean O. C. Schwiering of Education. The school offers training 
of recognized quality in each of these five broad fields. Each college is divided 
into departments manned by able faculty members. 

General supervision over living quarters, social affairs, and standards of 
students is exercised by Miss E. Luella Galliver, dean of women, and Major 
B. C. Daly, dean of men. 

Though a number of faculty members have entered the armed forces, 
those remaining have increased their loads so that educational training of 
a high calibre is afforded in each department.

Men of theROTC 

The 1943 WYO is Dedicated 

Members of the advanced Reserve Officers Training Corps, men who were 
our classmates and friends, left school before the end of the year to help 
fight our country's battle. We appreciate the significant contributions to 
University life and tradition which they made as members of this student 
body. It is to these men, and to all other Cowboys who have entered the 
armed forces, that we dedicate this book in gratitude and pride.

Alpha Chi Omega 

The Alpha Chi's live in their own house over on 1309 Grand, 
been there twelve years. It's kind of an exciting place, what with 
everybody swishin' back and forth. Each Mile, has her days 
crammed with things to do and places to go, but the gals are never 
too busy to enjoy each other; and we do mean enjoy. Never hope 
to see a more congenial lot. 

The girls have been engaging this year in some "cup copping," 
such as taking first in the Homecoming Sing. Some people label 
such things as accomplishments, but the girls just call it fun. 

Like all good Americans, the AXO'ers are great joiners, and 
consequently office holders. Just look here: Priscilla Ann McKmney, 
managing committee, Big Sister ex-chairman, president of A.W.S., 
Mortar Board, Potter Law Club . . . Marian Booker, president of 
Phi Sigma lota, past president of Alpha Chi Omega, Mortar Board, 
Panhellenic Council, Phi Kappa Phi, Phi Beta Kappa . . . Shirley 
Spencer, Panhellenic Council, Student Senate, Iron Skull, president 
of AXO, secretary of general activities committee, Phi Upsilon 

And then there's Dorothy Peck, Spurs, Workshop Dance, Band 
. . . Barbara Evans, Workshop Dance and Iron Skull . . . Rosemary 
Staats, Spurs, Big Sisters, A Cappella Choir, Band . . . Connie Clem, 
Theta Alpha Phi and Band. 

With two Mortar Boards and girls in Workshop Dance, Big 
Sisters, Choir, Band, and various honoraries, Alpha Chi Omega 
participates in 'most everything that goes on here.

Founded April 5, 1895, at the University of Arkansas, 
Chi Omega installed its local chapter in 1933. Cardinal 
and straw are the fraternity colors and the white carnation 
its flower. 

The Chi O's eat and sleep and have fun in a white 
house down at 609 Grand avenue. 

In tune with the national war effort, Chi Omega 
members have this year been devoting much of their time 
and energy to the campus war program. Supporting such 
projects as the scrap drive, Red Cross, and the local 
U.S.O., each girl has been contributing her share. 

"Big women on the campus" who wear the XO pin 
include Helen Louise Daly, chapter president, who is a 
Big Sister, member of the A.W.S. board, treasurer of the 
Home Economics Club, and treasurer of Phi Upsilon 
Omicron . . . Eva White, who is historian recorder of 
Kappa Delta Pi, and a member of Phi Sigma lota, Big 
Sisters, and Iron Skull . . . Nell Hanes, Quill Club scribe, 
treasurer of Phi Gamma Nu, and a Big Sister . . . 

Other officers besides President Helen Louise Daly are 
Mary Pfoff, vice-president; Eldee Swope, secretary; Nell 
Hanes, treasurer; and Merriconnie Gossett, social chair- 

Chi Omegas pause for an after-dinner chat 
before their fireplace.

Sigma Phi Epsilon 

The dream of six years was realized this spring when Lambda 
Tau Delta, local fraternity, was installed as Wyoming Alpha of 
Sigma Phi Epsilon. Organized in 1937 as a local, the fraternity 
achieved a place of distinction on the campus. Full cooperation 
with the University has been the aim of the group. Its members 
have participated in campus affairs and have won their share 
of honors in scholarship, athletics, dramatics, and other fields. 

Constant friendship among its members has always been a 
strong point of the local chapter of Sigma Phi Epsilon. 

Like the other fraternities on the campus, the group has had 
its membership cut during the past year through contributing 
many men to different branches of the service. 

Eilsworth Young led the fraternity this year as president. 
Other officers included Frank Hartung, vice-president and 
treasurer; John Rees, secretary and rush chairman; Jack Temple, 
social chairman; Harold Lochard, historian; James Clark, schol- 
arship chairman, and Charles Ross, athletic chairman. 

Other members who have been outstanding include Eldon 
House, Student Senate . . . Dwight Bailey, Scabbard and Blade 
. . . Kelly Berkley, scholarship. 

When Sig Ep installed its chapter here May 1 and 2, several 
years of hard work and steady progress were rewarded.

from year to year and is now recognized as one of 
the University's outstanding social organizations. 
The organization is second among all national 
fraternities in number of chapters and men initiated. 

The Wyoming Phi Delts have continued their 
high standing this year with several notable 
achievements. Ranked first is the Homecoming 
Sing trophy which went to Phi Delta Theta this 
year for the second time in the past three years. 
Likewise rated highly were the Phi Delt blue ribbon 
in intramural basketball and third place trophies in 
intramural boxing and wrestling. 

The Wyoming Phis have also contributed greatly 
to the war service, with over 75 per cent of the 
men initiated since 1934 now in the nation's armed

to many. 

Wearers of the golden key are seen in all phases of campus life 
— from ag college to law school, from dramatics to the Student 
Senate. They are proud to claim last year's Varsity Show heroine 
and winner of Theta Alpha Phi's "little Oscar," Wyoming's first

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon, founded on the Wyoming campus January 
26, 1917, after many prominent years as the local chapter of 
Sigma Beta Phi, is one of the oldest fraternities on the campus. 
In almost any sporting event, campus organization, or social 
activity one finds SAE's as active participants. 

With more than enough varsity football players to field an entire 
team, and standouts in all other sporting events, it is only natural 
that SAE has been nicknamed "The Tenth Street Athletic Club." 
SAE's own football team would include Clayton, Ray, Feeley, Loving, 
Black, McGee, Chenoweth, Scott, Amedro, Kirby, Cross, Katana, 
Beers, and Samuelson. Helping the cause would be two freshman 
players, Tobin and Fabrizius. Varsity baseball players Putz, Rudy, 
Harvey, and Bostwick, with freshman stalwarts Copenhaver, Frog- 
gatt, and Miles carry the SAE colors on the diamond. 

In basketball, Komenich, Katana, and Ray play important parts. 
Mrak rounds out the sports participation by wrestling on the varsity 

Completing the activities of SAE are Dick Bostwick, outgoing 
captain of Scabbard and Blade, president of the "W" Club, Iron 
Skull, Potter Law Club . . . Paul Putz, treasurer of Scabbard and 
Blade, Iron Skull ... Ed Halsey, Potter Law Club, Iron Skull,

Neither beauty, brains, nor popularity alone is the 
keynote of Pi Beta Phi, but rather a combination of all 
three. The oldest sorority on Wyoming's campus, the 
local chapter of Pi Phi was installed in 1910. Occupying 
a position of honor among the Pi Phi trophies is the Pan- 
hellenic scholarship cup which the chapter won last year. 

Pi Phi has four girls in Workshop Dance, one Phi Bete, 
numerous ski enthusiasts. The Pi Beta Phis have geared 
themselves to wartime living, and the arrow is pointing 
ahead to still higher achievements. 

Wearers of the arrow who are outstanding contributors 
to campus activities are Teddy Ann Storey, chapter presi- 
dent, president of Mortar Board, Campus War Queen . . . 
Mary Kay Anselmi, Sweetheart of Sigma Chi, honorary

members who have carried the Blue and Gold to fhe armed forces 
of fhe nation, there are 15 Sigs enrolled in the enlisfed reserves, 
while 18 others are training in advanced R.O.T.C. 

But in spite of time taken for serving America, bearers of the

the Interfraternity Scholarship Cup eighteen times. Last 
year Epsilon Delta chapter was awarded the Gallagher 
Cup, national scholarship cup for Sigma Nu, for the sixth

chapter. Statistically speaking, Sigma Nu men account 
for two Student Senators, seven Scabbard and Blade men, 
three members of Sigma Tau, seven "W" Club men, 
three candidates for honor graduation. Evidence of chap- 
ter activity is the trophy collection, the largest and most 
varied on the campus.

Lambda Delta Sigma was founded at the University of Utah in 1936 and installed 
on the Wyoming campus in 1 937. A combination fraternity and sorority, it is composed 
of the Alpha chapter for men and the Omega chapter for girls. Sponsored by Mormon 
students, the organization is characterized by a five-fold program of social, religious, 
scholastic, recreational, and cultural activities. This year it has a membership of eighty- 

LeNore Bagley and Glenn Lewis are presidents of the two chapters.

A group of Independents gather in the faculty lounge. 


Organized on the campus in 1932, the Indepen- 
dent Student Association is a member of the Rocky 
Mountain Independent Association and the Na- 
tional Independent Association. Representatives 
from the local group are sent each year to attend 
conventions of both organizations. 

More than two hundred students, who are not 
fraternity or sorority members, are active in the 
Independent Club. Activities include dancing every 
Monday evening, quarterly formal and informal 
dances, participation in all athletic and social com- 
petitive events, and a spring picnic. 

Officers of the club include Clinton Hudson, 
president; Ed Ward, vice-president; Clifford Smith, 
treasurer; Ruth Christensen, secretary. Members 
of the council are Ural Horton, Anna Jeannette 
Christensen, and Martha Estes. Don Shanor, former 
Independent president, is president of A.S.U.W. 
this year.

Varsity Villagers is a local organization made up 
of girls who either live in Laramie or are making 
their home out-in-town during the school year. The 
group was organized in 1920 for the purpose of 
bringing town girls into closer contact with campus 
life, and to cooperate with A.W.S. in maintaining 
high standards. 

Meetings are held every two weeks in the Nellie 
Tayloe Ross room of Merica Hall. 

Last fall at the Homecoming Sing, Varsity Vil- 
lagers won the cup awarded by Iron Skull to the 
outstanding independent group. Teas, dances, and 
informal parties have made up the group's social 
program for the year. 

Varsity Villagers rank high scholastically and are 
active in such organizations as Iron Skull, Spurs, 
Kappa Delta Pi, Big Sisters. Theta Alpha Phi, Glee 
Club, Choir, Band, and Orchestra. Jean Paulus, 
Varsity Villager, won the University's first garden- 
ing scholarship, and Barbara MacKay played the 
leading role in "Desert Song." 

Officers of the group are Margaret Wallace, pres- 
ident; Ann Levar, vice-president; Eleanor Noble, 
secretary; and Barbara MacKay, treasurer. Mrs. 
George Hollister is sponsor for the organization.

One of the most beautiful buildings on the campus is Knight Hall, newest girls' 
dormitory. This is Knight Hall's third year of existence, and once again the group 
was outstanding in Homecoming events. Jean Ballantyne, who reached final balloting 
for queen, is a Knight Hall girl, and the group won second prize for independents in 
the Homecoming Sing. 

A popularly elected board governs Knight Hall, headed this year by Dorothy Hartt. 
Lois Scott, Betty Nelson, and Willa Dee Davis also served as officers. 

Girls who live in Knight Hall eat their meals there in an attractive private dining 
room. Regular parties and a yearly dance make up the social program. Living facilities 
in Knight Hall could be compared with the best in any school.

Panhellenic Council 

Panhellenic Council exists for the purpose 
of promoting friendly relations and a spirit of 
cooperation among the six member sororities. 
All sorority members are included in the larger 
group called Panhellenic. Rushing rules are 
made and interpreted by this body and a hand- 
book published each year. 

Creek meets Greek each year at the Pan- 
hellenic dance, held winter quarter. The organ- 
ization usually sells huge "mums" for the 
Homecoming game, but this year flowers were 
replaced with defense stamp corsages. 

Grace Foote is new Panhellenic president, 
replacing Virginia Hufmeyer. The office ro- 
tates among the six groups. Each sorority has 
a junior and a senior representative on the 
council and an alumnae advisor.

Women Students 

Supreme governing body of the women 
students is the A. W. S. board, composed of 
representatives of the various women's organ- 
izations. The board is concerned in all ques- 
tions relating to the conduct of women stu- 
dents, except such problems as are academic 
in nature or fall under A. S. U. W. jurisdiction. 
"Smooth-functioning" describes the workings 
of this body. 

In tune with the war effort, the A. W. S 
Board has tried this year to encourage a pro- 
gram of good health habits, rest, and exercise 
among the women students. The Board also 
sponsored the mechanical aptitudes test given 
to all women students — girls learned that 
putting x'x in circles can be more than mere 

The most original costumes seen there in 
years made the annual A. W. S Costume Ball 
highly successful. 

Every woman student in the University is 
automatically a member of the Associated 
Women Students. Priscilla Ann McKinney 
functioned effectively this year as president

All Catholic students enrolled in the Uni-

which is a member of the Newman Club Fed- 
eration, international organization. The local 
chapter was installed in 1921 and has grown 
steadily, having well over a hundred members 
this year. 

The activities of the club are religious, edu- 
cational, and social in nature. Retreats, lec- 
tures, and discussion groups make up the more 
serious side of the program, while the social 
phase includes parties, dances, and picnics. 

Rex Cross was elected president of the 
group this year.

Potter Law Club stages a moot trial. 

Named after a former member of Wyoming's 
supreme court, the Potter Law Club is open to all 
law school students. Activities of this group are 
both social and professional. 

So that law students may gain practical expe- 
rience, the club stages several moot trials each year, 
which are open to the public. 

Social events held by the club include a banquet 
fall quarter, a formal dinner dance winter quarter, 
and a formal banquet spring quarter. 

Homecoming Queen elections are sponsored by 
the Potter Law Club. This year the Lawyers stole 
the Engineers' "W" placed on the Engine Hall dur- 
ing Homecoming, which served to add fresh fuel 
to an old feud. 

The club has lost a large number of men to the 
armed forces, but this is partly compensated for 
by the fact that girls in the club have reached an 
all-time high of five members. More than seventy 
law school graduates are now in service. 

Officers of the group include Russell Combs, 
chancellor; Clarence Lucas, vice-chancellor; Pris- 
cilla McKinney, secretary; Joe Minihan, treasurer; 
and Lyman Yonkee, senator.

also attempts to acquaint freshmen with the 
engineering school and promote the interest 
of outside engineers in the University. Scholar- 
ship, sociability, and practicality are stressed 
by the group. 

President of Sigma Tau this year was Roy 
Sutton. Other officers were Gerald McDer-

All students enrolled in civil engineering 
courses may become members of the American 
Society of Civil Engineers. Activities carried on 
by the group are for the purpose of promoting 
interest in all phases of civil engineering. The 
local organization is a student chapter of the 
national society, whose membership is made 
up of recognized civil engineers. It was in- 
stalled here in 1925. 

This group helps sponsor the Engineers' 
Open House, engineering conventions, and, of 
course, the feud with the Lawyers. 

Officers this year were Roy Sutton, presi- 
dent; Jerry McDermott, vice-president; and 
James Garrett, secretary-treasurer.

schools. Naturally, interest in things military has been at a high pitch this year, 
and Scabbard and Blade more active than ever. 

High mark of the winter quarter social season is the Military Ball, over which three 
coeds reign as honorary cadet officers.

Spurs For S 

urs ror service 

Each year twenty-six freshman girls who have 
been outstanding in campus activities are chosen to 
belong to Spurs, national sophomore honorary. One 
of fifteen Spur chapters, the local group was organ- 
ized in 1928. 

As a pep organization, Spurs always attend ath- 
letic contests in a group wearing their white uni- 
forms and cheering the team vociferously. In 
addition, Spurs is a service organization. This year 
the groups sold defense stamps down town and also 
sold tickets for the President's Ball and the Victory 

The group endeavors to participate in all worthy 
campus activities and promote a spirit of loyalty 
among the women students. Mary Winchell led the 
Spurs as president this year. Carol Clark was vice- 
president; Joan Cottschalk, secretary; Annie Lee 
Svensson, treasurer; and Ann Phelan, senator.

Theta Alpha chapter of Gamma Sigma Epsilon, 
national honorary chemical fraternity, was in- 
stalled on the Wyoming campus on May 25, 
1932. The national organization was founded at 
Davidson College, North Carolina, in 1919, and 
now has thirteen chapters. 

Membership in this organization, which seeks 
to advance the cause of chemical education, is 
open to chemistry majors with high scholastic 
averages. Several faculty members in the field 
serve as honorary members. 

Monthly meetings are held by this group, and

Best in Years, But 

Built around a great bunch of sophomores and juniors, Wyoming's 1942 
football team made the best showing in Big Seven conference play of any team 
the high-country has turned out since the conference began in 1937. 

In winning three games and losing five, the Bernard F. Oakes-coached eleven 
was never outclassed in any game. A year more of experience and the Cowhands 
would have reversed four of their five losses. 

Four members of the Puncher team received much mention in all-conference 
picks. Earl "Shadow" Ray, Cowboy junior tailback, was named to several all- 
conference first teams. Other players receiving mention were end Leonard 
Scott, tackle John Lentz, and guard Frank Gruden. All the latter three were 
playing their first year of varsity ball for Wyoming.

Fate Plays a Hand 

Wyoming opened their season in Laramie against Colorado State's formidable 
Aggies. Early-season predictions had favored the Aggies to take the conference 
crown. The Punchers far outgained Aggies both on the ground and in the air, 
were inside the Farmer fifteen-yard line six times, but lost the opener 10-0. 
Dude Dent scored all the Ag points. The loss was charged off to experience. 

The Cowboys hit their stride the following week in Provo. In a night game 
with Brigham Young, the Punchers walked off with a 13-7 win. Nimmo Taylor's 
sparkling 46-yard run for touchdown after catching a pass was a feature of the 

Wyoming's next game was here with Greeley State. The Bears had the best 
team in the Little Five. They wanted a victory over the Punchers to fatten their 
record. But four Wyoming tailbacks enjoyed a good afternoon and Wyoming 
won 33-0. Roger Loving, Shadow Ray, Gene Smith, and Walt Andre all crossed 
the goal line, Loving getting a brilliant 60-yard run for a touchdown.

With visions of conference championships in 
their eyes and a great ball club to back it up, 
Wyoming journeyed into Denver for a game 
with the D. U. Pioneers. The game was carefully 
played and methodical. The Punchers led 14-1 1 
with c minute to go. Wyoming had outplayed 
the Pioneers most of the way and looked like a 
great ball club. Then disaster struck. 

A freshman Denver back named Harold Hand 
faded back to his 30-yard line and threw a long, 
wobbly pass. Leon Diner, Denver end, caught it 
amid a pile of Wyoming players, wiggled loose 
long enough to throw a lateral to Tom Saracino, 
who scampered for a touchdown. Wyoming lost 
17-14 on that last-minute play. They never re- 
covered from the shock of losing that one. 

Another Little Five team, Colorado Mines, 
got the pent-up fury the Punchers had saved 
after losing the Denver game. Wyoming slopped 
through a muddy field at Golden to trounce the 
Miners 26-6. Dick Heasler's 46-yard run for a 
score high-lighted the contest.

The Dream's End 

After the Denver game, Wyoming's stock began going 
down hill. They whipped Colorado Mines 26-6, then took 
a week's rest. Theoretically the Punchers should have 
been well rested for their next game with Colorado's 

For a half Wyoming battled the C. U. team to a 7-7 
tie. Then Colorado broke loose with a rash of touchdowns 
and demoralized the Wyoming team, winning 27-7. The 
Cowboys played the Buffs a much closer game than the 
score indicated. Injuries to Roger Loving and Dick Heasler 
which kept them from this game, didn't help any. 

Homecoming for the Cowboys. Utah's conference 
champion Redskins provided the opposition. The game 
turned into an easy win for the Utes 34-7. This was the 
only game all year in which Wyoming was outclassed. At 
that, Roger Loving's 60-yard run for touchdown tied the 
score 7-7 in the second quarter. 

A team that had gradually slipped down the trail from 
a great club to a bewildered bunch of players lost their last 
game of the season to an inferior Utah State team at 
Logan 14-6. Shadow Ray ran 74 yards for a touchdown 
this game, but most of the time Wyoming just slipped 
around in the mud. 

If this crew of Wyoming pigskin carriers could be kept

national collegiate AA basketball 
champions and by defeating the 
champion of the National Invita-

State Celebrates 
Cowboys' Return 

After Wyoming's win of the national colle- 
giate championship, the state's ten-gallon hat 
sailed sky-high, and the Cowboy team was 
welcomed back to Laramie and the University 
with an all-out reception. 

Impromptu celebrations broke out all over 
the campus and city, and a Victory holiday 
was declared for University students, while 
Laramie merchants closed their stores for a 
half-day in their honor. 

The team's return was celebrated with a 
parade and banquet, with many notables of the 
state in attendance. 

Climax of the festivities came with an all- 
University assembly at which each member 
of the team was introduced and Governor 
Leslie C. Hunt gave the keynote address.

Intramural Boxing and Wrestling 

Lambda Delta Sigma, by virtue of five champion- 
ships and a second place winner, captured their 
fourth consecutive wrestling championship at Wyo- 
ming. In second place in the mat tournament were 
the Independents for the third successive year. 

Don Wheeler, Kappa Sigma light heavyweight, 
clinched a tie for the championship by outclassing 
Anderson of the Lambda Delta Sigma. The victory 
gave the Kappa Sigs a 14-point tie with the LDS, 
who were seeking their third boxing title. In third 
place behind the two leaders, Phi Delta Theta cap- 
tured both the boxing and wrestling third-place 
crowns, scoring 10 points in boxing and 10 in 

Dave Roberts, defending champion in the 165- 
pound class, successfully defended his title by over- 
coming a strong first-round attack from Harold 
Rollins, Sigma Nu, and was awarded a decision after 
a smashing third-round comeback.

One of the more popular winter sports on the campus, skiing, took some- 
thing of a set-back this year due to war conditions. Although the ski tow in 
the Snowy Range was closed during the winter months, several of the more 
ardent fans continued their weekend treks to the mountains. 

The Summit area also proved popular with skiers.

W. A. A. Carries On Complete 
Program of Women's Sports 

The cage girl in the women's P.E. department is kept busy 
checking out baskets and equipment. 

Under the direction of the Women's Athletic 
Association, on extensive intramural program is 
carried on in the women's physical education 
department. This organization sets the time for 
contests, regulates practice workouts, and di- 
rects the annual playday held each spring. 

Fall quarter events this year were field 
hockey, won by the Independent team, and 
volleyball, won by Alpha Theta Lambda. 

Two tournaments were held winter quarter. 
Alpha Theta Lambda won the honors in basket- 
ball, and Delta Delta Delta won the bowling 

Pi Beta Phi won the swimming meet held 
early in spring quarter. Other spring quarter 
events included a baseball tournament, tennis 
tournament, archery contest, and a field and 
track meet. 

Increasing interest in physical fitness as part 
of the war program has stimulated participation 
in women's athletics this year. 

The W.A.A. Board who directed these activi- 
ties included Marion Lester, president; Marilyn 
Flint, vice-president; Georgianne Flores, secre- 
tary; Evelyn Rose, treasurer; Alta Gaynor, sen- 
ator; and Myrtle Lucey, sports manager.

Student Senate 
Enacts Laws 

Organized five years ago for the purpose of devising a plan 
for financing the proposed Student Union building, the Student 
Senate is the legislative and policy forming body for the Asso- 
ciated Students of the University of Wyoming. The group 
includes twenty-three members, who represent a cross-section 
of student interests. The Senate has always been an active 
legislative body, fostering such projects as the Student Health 
Service, revival of the WYO, and the inclusion of the public 
exercises series in registration fees.

In semi-weekly meetings the Student Senate decides on 
general policies and plans. Then most of the administrative 
duties are assumed by the standing committees. The typical com- 
mittee is organized with two Senate and two non-Senate 
members, plus one administrative and one faculty member. 

Most active among the Senate committees are the executive, 
finance, Union managing, general activities, publications, loan, 
and social. Committee minutes are presented to the Senate for 
approval and then placed in permanent files. 

That student government at the University of Wyoming com- 
pares favorably with other schools is demonstrated by the fact 
that the University board of trustees, the administration, and 
the faculty delegate broad powers to this body. Its members 
perform a real service for the school. 

Gearing its program to war, the Senate has stressed this year 
such activities as stamp sales, scrap drives, and the Branding Iron 
Service Fund. This year's Student Senate has been up to past 
standards despite the difficulties of operating in wartime. Don 
Shanor has been a hard-working and capable president. 

Marybcth Burns, sophomore, took over the student manager's 
duties after Minihan's departure for the armed forces.

Branding Iron 
Gets the News 

Thursday morning is the time when everyone drops in the 
Union to pick up o Branding Iron, weekly campus newspaper. 
A member of the Associated Collegiate Press, the "B. I." covers 
the campus news adequately and well. 

This year the Branding Iron was sent to hundreds of Wyo- 
ming men now serving in the armed forces. Contributions from 
various organizations to the Branding Iron Service Fund made 
this possible. 

Like all other campus activities, the Branding Iron has been 
a bit harassed this year by changing personnel. Sometimes the 
staff tears its collective hair trying to get the news in and the 
paper out, but it's all good fun. 

Jack Moses has served this year as managing editor and 
hence "big boss" of the paper. Don Shanor has kept the books 
in the black as business manager. Roy Peck began the year as 
desk editor and later was replaced by Ruth Ryan. News editor 
is Betty Caldwell. 

The sport scene is Jack Lebsack's field, and social doings are 
up Patty Tobin's alley. Nancy Putnam obliges with a weekly 
feature story, and Lucille Chambers manages the circulation. 
Lila Mae Hofmann pinch hit all year and replaced "Mose" as 
editor spring quarter. 

Regular reporters are Marjorie Bailey, Richard Redburn, 
Emmeline Lytle, Bill Symons, Bill Schwiering, Sandra MacKay, 
Leota Carson, Sawa Suyematsu, Glenn Shippen, Margaret Mont- 
gomery, Kaz Oshiki, and Vera Wells. Analylle Smith and Bill 
Symons are Don's right hand men in selling ads. Analylle 
replaced Don as business manager. 

We don't know whether Business Manager Shanor is "call- 
ing up the little woman" or relaying a hot news tip to 
Editor Moses.

Those Who 
Made Your WYO 

Betty Caldwell, above, bats out annual copy, while Lila 
Mae Hofmann, below, checks over page proofs 

Nearly scrapped because of war exigencies, the 
WYO annual was published this year in spite of de- 
creased enrollment and priorities on film and flash 
bulbs. Despite the fact that the size of the book had 
to be cut, Lila Mae Hofmann and Betty Caldwell, 
editors, have made a sincere attempt to give as com- 
plete as possible a picture of this war year at Wyoming. 

When the finance committee of the Senate decreed 
that 700 WYO's must be sold in advance before 
publication could be attempted, Business Manager 
Kermit Eggensperger put over a sales campaign that 
resulted in the sale of over 800 annuals. Analylle 
Smith became "Doc's" successor when the army called, 
and handled the advertising for the book. 

Those who have given valuable assistance to the 
editors in publishing the WYO are Roger Loving and 
Greg Fitzgerald, photographers; Ellis Brown, staff 
artist; Marybeth Burns, organizations editor; Roy Peck, 
sports editor, and Mr. James C. Stratton, faculty ad- 
visor and guardian angel.

Desert Song 

Nord Gardner uses his wiles on Barbara MacKay. 

Highlighting the year of student productions was the presentation of Sigmund Romberg's 
famous musical hit, "The Desert Song." Featuring one of the strongest casts ever assembled 
for a University production, more than sixty people and a full orchestra took part in it. 

Nord Gardner as Pierre Birabeau and Barbara MacKay as Margot Bonvalet headed the cast, 
with Ray Salisbury as Benny, Marge Manley portraying the part of Susan, Margaret Bolle in 
the seductive part of Azuri, Harry Thompson and Johnny Davis portraying the characters 
of Sid El Kar and Captain Paul Fountaine, and Jimmy Thompson as General Birabeau, Hale 
Laybourn, Byrne Gardner, Ted Hoy and Bob Spatz in supporting roles. 

George Gunn, director of voice, was director of the production, and the departments of 
music, art, drama, and dance combined their efforts to make this one of the best perform- 
ances of the year.

Spotlight and Greasepaint 

Big event of the year for the University theatre was "Mr. and Mrs. North," presented 
Tuesday night, November 19. Leading roles were played by Margaret Bolle and Jack Wein- 
barg, well known campus thespians. Heading a large cast of supporting players were Kermit 
Eggensperger and Jake Lebsack. Dean Nichols, speech professor, directed the play. 

Replete with corpses and even more so with laughs, "Mr. and Mrs. North" belonged to 
the type of mystery drama which keeps one in chuckles rather than in chills. 

During winter quarter, members of the drama department read Shakespeare's "Taming 
of the Shrew" at a Twilight Hour program in the Union. Participating were Marian Cibbs, 
narrator, and Ray McKinsey, Barbara Ann Benton, Jake Lebsack, Jack Weinbarg, Fred Ber- 
kenkemp, Nord Gardner, Shirley Baker, and Virginia Del Monte. 

The drama department collaborated with the music and art departments in presenting 
the extremely successful operetta, "Desert Song," on February 1 1.

The Department of Voice offers individual vocal training of a thorough and musicianly 
nature and is producing many accomplished singers on our campus. Several choral organizations 
of University students were quite active during this year. There was the always popular 
A Cappella choir presenting programs with varied repertoire; the chorus which sang Men- 
delssohn's oratorio, the "Elijah;" the Men's and Women's Glee Clubs giving their individual 
programs and uniting to present Romberg's opera "The Desert Song;" the male quartette and the 
women's sextette. 

George W. Gunn, M.M., director of the department and acting chairman of the division of 
music, is the able director of all choral groups.

A strong interest in modern choreography has been created on the ccmpus during the 
past several years by the Workshop Dance group. The group has no formal organization 
and is held together by the enthusiasm of the members and leadership of the director, 
Miss Charlotte Bergstrom. 

Outstanding production of the group this year was Tschaikowski's "Nut Cracker Suite," 
the choreodrama given in May. Other dance programs presented were a tea recital, an 
assembly program, and a Twilight Hour. 

The more advanced members of the group are allowed to create original choreography, 
and the calibre of the work done is very high. 

Girls who have been members of the group this year are Margaret Van Wagnen, 
Maxine Roukema, Betty Mitchell, Maurine Fitch, Mary Boyce, Roberta Eads, Margie 
Edwards, Teddy Anne Storey, Gladys DeBerry, Mary Maxwell, Barbara Evans, Jean Ann 
Dunn, Judith Topham, Jean Boyce, Renee Howard, and Virginia Quick.

Band and 

The University band performs in a special assembly. 

Regular public performances are given by the University symphony orchestra, under the direction 
of Robert Becker. This year the group gave a full concert in the fall quarter. In winter quarter, it 
participated in producing the operetta, "The Desert Song," and played for numerous assemblies. During 
spring quarter a concerto concert was given with student soloists. 

The personnel of the orchestra is made up of talented students and faculty members in the division 

of music. 

Chamber music groups under Mr. Becker's supervision have set a high standard in ensemble playing. 
The string quartet, Frances Ross and Elaine Crowley, violins; Sheila Wheat, viola; and Jane Holliday, 
cello, have appeared in concert and on the radio many times this season. 

The University band has made about 25 appearances this year, including two concerts. 

The Cowboy band started with eighty members this fall, and for the first time a girls' band was 
organized. During spring quarter, the loss of men made complete reorganization necessary. 

Band officers this year were Bill Avery, president; LaVerne Clarke, vice-president; and Walter 
Klahn, manager. Officers of the girls' band were Patricia Sellers, Barbara MacKay, and Donna Toland. 
Drum majors were Nathal Occhipinti and Marian Jacobson.
